Another Thursday, another Welsh lesson….
& today’s was very good indeed. I’d spent the previous evening whizzing through the homework which proved an excellent precursor to the lesson, during which we built on our basic grammar. We left the class filled with bonhomie as what we’re learning finally seems to be sinking in, at last! In fact, to the extent that I find myself increasingly gaining in confidence to converse with native Welsh speakers in the local area, even such simple things as asking the contractors working on site how they’d like their tea, coffeee etc – which only a short time ago, was a bridge too far.
At the lesson’s conclusion Boo & I retired to one of the local coffee shops for a chat, after which we did a little shopping & returned to her home for a simple but delicious lunch of mushroom paté with crackers; fresh, crisp celery, & delicious little hot peppers stuffed with cool, creamy lactic cheese.
Following our repast I returned home, discovering to my dismay that again, there was no sign of the contractors & the excavator was still in ‘dry dock’ in our barn. However, I was relieved when towards dusk the mechanic arrived & promptly set to work, not departing until quite late in the evening. Unfortunately he has not been able to complete the repairs, today; I can only hope that things start looking up, tomorrow….
